This is a historical important castle and it's easy to see why they built it just there. They are currently building a visitor centre, and there is some work going on there. But it didn't ruin the beautiful view. A must see when on Bornholm.

The four round churches and this place are the must-do's on this island. It is a brilliant location with ruins on the cliffs overlooking the Baltic. The grounds are beautiful and easy to walk around. They are building a new visitor center which should enhance the experience. Do this, no matter your age.

This place is located in a really stunning part of island, the views and surroundings are just beautiful. It has a lot of potential in terms of guidance, the information boards are in Danish German and English where the Danish part is taking 3/4 of the board and the other 2 languages are like a short version of the Danish...

Hammershus, located on the Northern part of the Danish holiday island, Bornholm, is a spectacular trace of the islands past. The castle, Northern Europes biggest, is placed upon a rocky outpost near the coast, easily defensible and with excellent views of the coast. Lots of the castle was demolished and bricks carried away to construct houses between closure in the... More

We made a stop here during our 90 mile bike ride around the island. Plan on one to two hours to walk the grounds and enjoy the views of the Baltic Sea. The castle is set a little ways back from the road. There is a small cafe on site and restrooms.

Went here with my family and two small children and we all enjoyed ourselves while walking around and imagining how the ruins were in the old days. Nice views and a fun trip into history.

Hammershus is quite impressive due to the size of it. In combination with its amazing location and great views, this is a must-see at Bornholm.

Which part of Game of thrones are we in? : ) Beautifully situated ruin with stunning views over the sea. The walk from the parking to the castle sets your mind and it is easy to imagine people riding to meetings at the castle. There are lots of information signs and you can for example find the place for the... More

You may not be particularly interested in history to appreciate these fantastic remnants of a huge castle built around 1255, but if you are so lucky as to have a guide like our Bente, well then you just watch and listen.
